This is pretty funny! But Cliff, let me ask you: if it weren't for Heylin,
would stuff like THE MILLER'S TALE have ever come about? (Despite his
disparaging liner notes)

>From what I can tell, there's a lot of personal animosity against Heylin on
this list. But I've enjoyed three of his books tremendously and been introduced
to a fair amount of new music through him. He certainly raised the profile of a
lot of obscure/defunct artists and bands the members of this list enjoy.
